Basic Information


Dragons are a mutated Spinosaurus that developed three spines, two of which turned into wings that allows the species to fly. They have four limbs and are quadrupedal. Each breed has some differences in color, spines, and horns, but all breed are capable of interbreeding.

Biological Traits

Most dragons are large enough to carry around multiple Raptors and to pull carts, but the dwarf dragon subspecies is small enough to rest on the shoulder of a full-grown Raptor. Males and females are identical.

Genetics and Reproduction

Dragons can mate at 20 years old. Often times both parents will incubate the eggs and raise the chicks. Dragon mothers carry around the eggs for about a month, and often around 3-5 eggs are laid. It takes around 2 and a half months for a dragon off to hatch.

Growth Rate & Stages

Dragons grow quite slowly, taking 7 years to even be able to work. But their slow growth means that each dragon can work for more than 50 years. This also means that dragons fairly often outlive their Raptor partners.

Ecology and Habitats

Dragons mostly exist under the care of Raptors, but dragons can be found in any habitat that provides enough fish to eat. As such, wild dragons are usually spotted near rivers, lakes, and oceans. However, the dwarf subspecies lives in forests and jungles and feeds almost exclusively on fruit.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Most dragons feed mainly on fish, but many can eat a verity of foods temporarily. However, it is ill advised to remove fish from their diet all together as it is known to cause malnutrition and cognitive difficulties. Dwarf dragons feed mostly on fruit and eat few fish.

Biological Cycle

Dragons experience little changes during the seasons, but their scales tend to be brightest in spring and summer, and dullest in autumn and winter.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Wild dragons live in small groups with an alpha leader. The dragons are not all related and often female dragons leave their birth group to join another group.


Dragons were originally domesticated by the Aquatic Raptors who often lived beside the fish hunting dragons. They originally domesticated the dragons by stealing eggs and raising the chicks to hunt fish and to travel long distances out of water. Soon other Raptors took notice of the great physical powers of the dragons and soon domesticated many different subspecies as needed for the environment and working conditions.

Facial characteristics

Teeth may or may not protrude. Most dragons have a spine that goes from their head to their tail, many also have small horns or spikes around their bodies, most prominently on their face.
